Re: Question about gzip compression when using Flume Ng
Yeah I have tried the text write format in vain before,
but nevertheless gave it a try again!! Below is the latest file - still the
same thing.

*gzip: collector102.ngpipes.sac.ngmoco.com.1358204141600.gz: decompression
OK, trailing garbage ignored*

*Interestingly enough, the gzip page says it is a harmless warning -
http://www.gzip.org/#faq8*

However, I'm losing events on decompression so I cannot afford to ignore
this warning. The gzip page gives an example about magnetic tape - there is
an analogy of hdfs block here since the file is initially stored in hdfs
before I pull it out on the local filesystem.
